    Did you catch this quote from Ron Howard? “Tom is an exciting actor to watch thinking.”

    Gee, Ron, I don’t think people go to movies to watch actors think.

    Even worse…I named my son Silas, you know, after Silas and Timothy…unfortunately I found out that Silas is the terrorist albino monk from hell in this film…
